Indie author Tracy Falbe currently offers two free iBooks at Apple’s bookstore. The free iBooks promote two of her fantasy series: Werewolves in the Renaissance and The Rys Chronicles.
Battle Creek, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/25/2014 -- Fantasy readers looking for a new series frequently sample free iBooks. Hoping to attract new readers, indie author Tracy Falbe has begun a free iBooks promotion with Werelord Thal: A Renaissance Werewolf Tale and Union of Renegades: The Rys Chronicles Book I.
For the first time since its publication last November, Werelord Thal is a free ebook at the iBooks bookstore run by Apple, Inc. The author chose to do this because its sequel Journey of the Hunted: Werewolves in the Renaissance 2 will be released on November 8. It is already an iBooks preorder for a promotional $0.99 price.
The Werewolves in the Renaissance series is historical fantasy built on the premise that the sorcery and witchcraft beliefs common in 16th century Europe are real. Falbe created her werewolf hero Thal as a man in control of his savage animal powers. His adventures in the turbulent world of the Holy Roman Empire in 1561 highlight a violent society against the backdrop of a mystical natural world.
This excerpt from the scene when Thal first exerts his werewolf powers illustrates the passion and force of Falbe’s writing.
He raised his mouth and howled like he never had before. A huge sound trumpeted from his great throat with an intelligent rage that put the world on notice that he would defend his right to live.
The sound filled the vale with shuddering energy. Peasants clutched their covers and stared into the darkness. Children whimpered in their little beds. Praying monks faltered in their entreaties to a higher power when the voice of the Earth beneath their knees called them to attention.
Her other novel in the free iBooks promotion is Union of Renegades: The Rys Chronicles Book I. This epic fantasy was the first novel she published in 2006. Currently maintaining a 4.5 star rating in the U.S. iBooks store, Union of Renegades has introduced thousands of people over the years to The Rys Chronicles fantasy series that continues in The Goddess Queen, Judgment Rising, and The Borderlands of Power.
About Union of Renegades
The epic begins as Dreibrand Veta and the conquering Horde of the Atrophane Empire reach a mythic Wilderness that beckons with a magical call to glory. But Onja, Queen of the rys, a race far more powerful than the greatest human state, guards this land. She has the power to imprison souls and her genocidal rage is legendary. Everything is at risk for her desperate enemies, the union of renegades.
Either of the free iBooks can be read on Apple devices like iPhones, iPads, and Mac computers. Since the release of the new iPhone 6 and the operating system iOS8, iBooks is a preloaded app, making the bookstore easy to find. People in over 50 countries enjoy access to this ebook store.
“Touch the iBooks app to enter the bookstore and get my free iBooks. Then you can read them on your phone or tablet any time,” Falbe said.
In addition to her free iBooks, Falbe has eight other fantasy novels published. Two novels Union of Renegades and The Goddess Queen are also audiobooks at iTunes
Living in Battle Creek, Michigan, Falbe operates Brave Luck Books at http://www.braveluck.com where she promotes and sells her fantasy fiction worldwide.
